Contacts, Glasses & Fashion

Guest Post

When so many aspects of a person’s everyday appearance are discussed and taken into account with regard to fashion, it is a bit surprising how few people talk about eyewear and corrective vision from a style standpoint. Of course, people do recognize fashionable glasses on occasion, but in general the issue of how to address your corrected vision with regard to making a fashion statement is rarely brought up. Some people require either contact lenses or eyeglasses for reasons that go beyond fashion, such as comfort issues or other factors. However, for the most part, Acuvue contact lenses come in enough comfortable and different styles that most people at least have the option of wearing contacts. So, which form of corrective vision is most helpful for fashion?

The truth is, both glasses and contact lenses can help you a great deal to be versatile with style accessories. Eyeglasses can actually be extremely fashionable in a number of different contexts. The fact is, there are thousands and thousands of different frames available to you, which means that instead of merely thinking about correcting your vision with your prescription lenses, you should be thinking about what goes around those lenses! The right frame for your eyeglasses can turn them from a tool into an accessory, and can greatly improve your daily image.

That said, it is also worth noting that contact lenses offer you more flexibility than eyeglasses. To begin with, contact lenses enable you to spend days and nights without glasses on, and this can be a great option to have if you think certain looks are better without glasses, or even that certain events would be best without anything on your eyes. Additionally, wearing contact lenses allows you to wear other accessories, such as sunglasses during the warmer months of the year. This is a freedom you simply don’t have if you depend on eyeglasses for your vision.

Ultimately, it is clear that both contacts and glasses offer fashion benefits. The best option might be to simply have both on hand, so that you can use either one depending on what you think looks best with what you’re wearing, how you’re doing your hair, etc. However, another option to consider, which is becoming more and more popular, is to simply wear contact lenses for your vision, and to purchase a few pairs of stylish eyeglasses with clear lenses. That way, you will never truly be dependent on glasses for your vision, but you will have the option of putting on different frames when you want to, from a style standpoint.

  2. As a young glasses wearer, I agree with what you're saying, although it should be noted sometimes contacts simply aren't an option! I know many of my own peers don't understand why I don't get contacts, my eyesight is too bad that if I was to get contacts it would only reduce my prescription, not eliminate my need for frames, although sometimes I do feel frames are limiting. The same look from the neck up for over a year till you get a new pair of glasses can be tedious but you got to work with what you got! Nice post!

  3. I totally agree that both contacts and glasses are equally useful to have on hand depending on how you feel that day!

    Some looks are better with lenses (i.e.: summer looks as glasses irritate me when it's warm) - whereas I've found other outfits (especially those for work) look more stylish with specs.

    I like being able to change up my look this way - wearing glasses is like having an additional fashion accessory at my disposal! :-)
